Meiji's Green Tea & Red Bean Ice-Cream

Daughter and I got lucky last week when we dropped by at Jash Mart along Wilson Street, Greenhills because the "kuya" there informed me that "me new stocks ng meiji ice-cream." Wow!

*** I wasn't able to take a photo of the freezer because its not allowed

And here's what we got ...



Actually, its a choice between the Green Tea and the Hokkaido Milk Ice-Cream. I just told daughter that since I'm the one paying, I get to choose the flavor-- hahaha. Bad mommy!



I love the flavor! This is not the commercialized green tea that tends to be sweet. This one is really green tea-ish! The subtle hint of bitterness was gently coated by the sweet red beans. Blends perfectly well. A canister /pint of Meiji Ice Cream costs P250.00 only. Yum!

I remember Haagen Daz' green tea ice cream tastes bitter but I got addicted to it eventually. This one tastes just right.

Will try the hokkaido milk and dark chocolate this week. Shhhhhh, I'm gonna surprise daughter. ;)

  1. I love ice cream having a little fragrance of coffee in it. I don't know whether you tried it or not but I'm definitely gonna try this green tea ice cream for sure. I think it is worth trying. Thanks for the blog post.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
